WATERFORD — About 55 Waterford taxpayers braved the subzero wind chill Saturday to approve the proposed $1.5 million annual budget, an increase over last year's budget of $1.4 million.
Of the 70 articles approved which comprised this year's warrant, only a few raised any sort of discussion from the floor.
Pat Lawler motioned to increase the sum of money appropriated for the Waterford Fire Chief Adrien Morin and assistant chiefs from $7,500 to $10,000.
Assistant Chief Tom Murch explained that he appreciated the thought but they aren’t doing their job for the money and they did not expect an increase in pay.
The motion for an increase of $2,500 to their pay passed unanimously.
